at the edge of both

At the edge of both 

At the edge of both, a group exhibition curated by Serrah Russell and Zack Bent, presents four artists that expose the complexity of our perceptions of geography and place. Through the bending of their chosen mediums, these artists appear to turn landscape and space inside out, revealing hidden seams and edges. New forms materialize and we find ourselves floating between the familiar and a newly imagined future. 
Rachelle Bussières (Brooklyn, NY) explores the relationship between the physical world, time and perception by examining the transformation and production of space. Using the early photographic process of lumen printing she seeks to “generate new ways of seeing, challenge our beliefs of perception, and draw attention to the ways in which light and shadow sculpt new optical space”. Iván Carmona (Portland, OR) creates clay forms that abstract the landscape of his homeland, Puerto Rico. Carmona’s vibrant ceramic sculptures "draw from the memories he has as a child in a place rich with intense colors, shapes and textures." Taylor Hanigosky (Seattle, WA) makes site-responsive and temporary installations, as she aims to deepen her own perspective of time, labor and energy. “Her practice centers around building an intimate relationship to her materials, making space for intuition in the creative process”. Jarvi Kononen (Detroit, MI) references vernacular landscape photography as point of departure as he inserts cut paper and photographs in a process akin to drawing. His work brings attention to “the intertwined possibilities and limitations of describing a complex and ever-changing landscape.”
